If 1.2 % is 10 year low then may be 4% is still less than that year before last or same as that of year before last.

(B)Last year a dip in oil prices brought inﬂation temporarily below its recent stable annual level of 4 percent.
(D)The 1.2 percent rate of inﬂation last year represented a 10-year low.

Both options talk about last year
stating annual in B, is what makes the option more accurate than D?
Also, in B, we cannot say its upward trend - staying at 4% is not upward trend

A, since 4% is average rate. rate will depend next year on set of samples. B is not as 1.2 to 4 is not a jump. 1.2 was due to global reason.

(A) The inflation figures were computed on the basis of a representative sample of economic data rather than all of the available data. -> strengthen the argument
(B) Last year a dip in oil prices brought inflation temporarily below its recent stable annual level of 4 percent.
(C) Increases in the pay of some workers are tied to the level of inflation, and at an inflation rate of 4 percent or above, these pay raises constitute a force causing further inflation. -> out of scope
(D) The 1.2 percent rate of inflation last year represented a ten-year low. -> strengthen
(E) Government intervention cannot affect the rate of inflation to any significant degree. -> out of scope
